Zap that Hangover
Yes we all go overboard sometimes but you can give your liver a big helping hand the next day by staying off fatty/sugary foods like McDonalds (which just leave you feeling worse afterwards) and having a lovely juice or smoothie instead.
Love your Liver
The body, and specifically the liver, is constantly clearing out waste and it does a marvellous job of detoxing regardless of what we throw at it. But when we start to feel tired and sluggish, this could be a sign that your liver has become overloaded or your body is too acidic. Alkalising is the name of the game when it comes to detoxing and it is agreed that green juices are the alkalising kings.
Superfoods for Weightloss
If you're cutting calories in order to lose weight, it is imperative to make those calories count nutritionally as much as you can in order to stop your body going into starvation mode. You also need high energy levels to enable you to get out and exercise. Starting the day with a green smoothie with added superfoods such as spirulina or wheatgrass will help you on both counts.
A super juice or smoothie packed with living enzymes, healthy fats and minerals such as magnesium will give you boundless energy as you're giving your body exactly what it needs to function.
Hydrate for Beauty
Along with plentiful amounts of spring or filtered water, regularly drinking a juice made from predominantly cucumber will give you your glow back.
Balance your Blood Sugar
Hypoglycaemia – or low blood sugar – and its accompanying symptoms of dizziness, hunger, sugar cravings and low mood is often caused by skipping meals and/or regularly eating sugary foods. Eating a breakfast that is low in sugar and that contains a healthy amount of protein and fat is key to breaking the vicious cycle of blood sugar spikes and crashes.
